I have been trying out some new (to me) blog writing tools.  So, if some of the formatting of my posts seems a little off…it’s just me learning a new tool.  Blogger can be challenging to use, to say the least b/c it’s not intuitive to someone like me, who is not a techno-geek.  I had learn about tags and writing in html b/c Blogger didn’t give me the ability to jazz up my posts!

Anyways, since I post regularly about my ING savings account, I wanted post about other banks out there that are offering high interest rates…and have an opportunity to try out my hand in insert a table into this blog.

Wow, I didn’t know that Discover had a bank.  When I think of Discover, I think of credit cards not a bank.  Personally, I wouldn’t trust Discover with my money b/c they would probably tack on too many fees!!!LOL
